I was a Poppy Planter and Poppy Remover – both memorable and moving experiences. On the planting day a Beefeater Guard said that arriving early in the morning and hearing the sound of the poppies blowing in the breeze was like feeling the souls of those who died.
I bought poppies for my sons. I am still in touch with people I met on the day. The experience will live with me forever. A very special time.
